Cum Laude

The Upper School honored its new inductees into the Seven Hills chapter of the Cum Laude Society, a national honor society that recognizes academic excellence, at the Cum Laude dinner in mid-April. New members are juniors Annika Alper, Kayzad Bharucha, Alex Grass, Allison Huffman, Nina Martinez Diers, Megan McLennan, Kristen Porter, Katie Remaklus, Ella Samaha, and Andrea Stancescu; and seniors Ariel Gleich, Abigail Markworth, Amisha Mittal, Michael Nordlund, Madison Peltier, Rohan Sachdeva, Neda Tehrani, Belinda Wang, and Max Yuan. The event’s guest speaker was former Seven Hills math department chair Anne Ramsay. The event also honored the members who were inducted last year as juniors: Madeleine Jay, Gregory Kalin, Felix Karthik, Aryan Katneni, Christopher Nathan, Varshini Odayar, Annabel Stanley, and Grant Veldhuis. Ramsay, who left her position as Upper School math teacher at Seven Hills in 2018, to become a middle school math and science teacher at St. Francis Seraph School in Over-the-Rhine, said she decided she needed to uproot herself from a more known and comfortable professional experience in order to grow and live a more fulfilling life. She shared three points of wisdom — “Learn to uproot yourself and place yourself in different situations throughout your careers, “Remember to give of your heart as much as you do your intellect, and remember the importance of mentorship when you are in the position to mentor.”
